Footnote: The Association was founded in 1911 in New York. The mission of the order is to “research and preserve the history of patroonship, seigneuries and manor in Colonial North America as well as to permit historic preservation and education on colonial life.” The membership is by invitation only and is only offered to individuals with hereditary lineage to a colonial lord. The Manor of Gardiner’s Island was built in 1774, however, the land was granted to Lion Gardiner in 1639, and he was given the title ‘Lord of the Manor.’ The original house burnt down in 1947 and was rebuilt the same year by Sarah Diodati Gardiner. It is likely that Annie S. Leed is a descendant of the Gardiner family.
